If you need to know which CPU a process is using, top can be used to find out.

 1. start top
 2. hit the f key
 3. you can now select the fields you want to display. 
    P gives the last CPU used so select that.

You will now see output along the lines of:

 PID  USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  P SWAP COMMAND
20394 oracle    15   0 20.2g 133m 129m S  6.6  0.3   0:37.88 3  20g oracle
